When I first started learning to fly there was a lot of controversy over dangerous landings
. Most of the instructors and licensed pilots would revel at telling stories of hair-raising landings they had experienced teaching flying to student pilots. Over time it became clear to those of us who flew a lot that takeoffs could be every bit as dangerous as a dangerous landing
The above video shows an aircraft landing at one of the more dangerous airports in the world. The approach is strictly VFR (Visual Flight Rules) and presents some interesting challenges. However, the above landing is pure vanilla when you consider the following video:
Clearly this student pilot was concentrating on flaring the aircraft and never saw the SUV approaching on the perimeter road. I guess this is why we have insurance, right?
